This was atypical of the beaches along the coast and not that special but probably larger and more available to the public than most.

Ka'anapali Beach is tucked along west Maui coast and nuzzles into Black Rocks area as you approach Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa. Plenty of sand to stretch out and relax. Bring towels, umbrella, water, sunscreen and sunglasses.

We loved this beach! So much space with nice sand. Not too rocky. Lots of surfers and great for swimming. Limited free public parking - we lucked out getting a free spot in the tiny lot since the day started as overcast but it was...More

This would have to be the best beach on Maui. Go right up the end of the beach walk to the black rocks. It's where the locals come on the weekends. You get a Maui vibe with the locals jumping off the rocks. Maui would...More

Public parking right next to the Westin Villas. Lots of room. 50 yards either direction from the Westin Villas are best. If there has been recent rain and run-off this beach will still be good.

We love to walk this beach after dinner. Great place for star gazing and sunsets. We ensure at least two walks on the beach while in Kaanapali ..... Before going back!!!

This beach had beautiful views, gorgeous sand, great swimming and an outstanding reef! We saw a sea turtle and an eel as well as thousands of fish right off the beach in front of our hotel.

Beautiful beach. Close to all the resorts. Take a journey down both ends and rent an umbrella and chairs from a different resort to have a new view for the day. Quite busy with people but lots of room for all. Best sunset views on...More

It is a beautiful beach, close to restaurants and shopping. Take an umbrella as there is no shade to escape to.

The beach is a very pleasant place to relax and enjoy the water. The surf is variable so always be cautious. Finding a parking spot is a challenge unless you are staying in one of the resorts along the beach.

Definitely road construction so expect delays. The far north end of beach under beach refurbishment as well. Just take your time and expect delays.
